Ravens mail season-ticket assignments

July 09, 1996|By Ken Murray

The Ravens sent out information packets yesterday assigning seats to 54,000 season-ticket holders for the team's inaugural NFL season in Memorial Stadium.

Roy Sommerhof, director of ticket operations, said the team was in the process of mailing packages to some 18,000 season-ticket holders, accounting for those 54,000 season tickets.

The packages include a letter from the Ravens and a seating chart of the stadium. Beyond that, Sommerhof said, the team has established a hot line (1-888-9RAVENS) to answer questions about the process.

Fans had a June 12 deadline to apply for first-day ticket priority. Those applications were randomly sorted by a computer, and a numbering system was assigned to each account. That information was fed into another computer, which assigned seats.

The club will mail those season tickets by July 22, Sommerhof said.

He also said approximately 3,000 season tickets are still available in the $25 and $17 categories.

The letters confirming seat assignments were delayed a week, in part, because of larger orders.

"Within the random selection process, we hand-placed those orders with anything over eight tickets," Sommerhof said. "People don't want to sit eight straight across."
